Chuck Nash / Bio

Singer-Songwriter Chuck Nash is best known for his well-crafted, tightly arranged songs and for his relentless performance schedule. His latest CD project “Ten Short Stories by C.L. Nash” (his 5th overall) was released in early May and is a moody collection of songs that wander through a range of musical styles, from the repetitive, groove-based “Make Some Time” to the 7-minute psychedelic fantasy “Joyride”. All of the songs were recorded at Nash’s own Zoe Tribe Studios in Jacksonville, FL. Thanks to generous fan support using the art-funding platform Kickstarter, Nash & his band were able to enlist the one-and-only Eric Sarafin, a.k.a. Mixerman (Ben Harper, Tom Petty, Lifehouse) to mix the album. Mastered by the legendary Bob Ohlsson, Ten Short Stories by C.L. Nash is now available on his website and through the major online music stores, including iTunes and Amazon.

Nash's live show is unique in that Nash coaxes a lot of sound from his acoustic guitar with an out-of-the-box approach to effects and by altering his technique to allow him to play bass lines while also playing guitar (note: there are NO loop pedals involved!). Nash’s guitar/bass approach along with bandmate Ken Nasta’s unorthodox drum set-up & bandmate Brian Homan’s out-of-the-box approach to the already difficult pedal-steel guitar combine for an instrumentation you simply will not see anywhere else.

After playing solo acts 3-5 nights per week during college, Nash didn't want to stop playing music upon graduation. He formed several bands, and later released his first CD under the name Kingpins, with drummer/co-producer Rob Piazza. The duo played with several different bass players and began earning an impressive regional following touring the southeast in support of its debut album. Kingpins later released a 2nd CD of Nash-penned songs Kings And Things. A few years later, Nash released his first solo album, the aforementioned Dressed In Yellow Light, on Down In Front Records. Nash continued to perform and in 2008 got married, bought a house, and eventually was able to convert the garage into a pro studio, "thanks to the help of some amazing friends." He then began recording other bands and artists, learning all the while. In 2010, Chuck got a call from Ben Rowell, a founding member of the band Big Sky, who was in search of a new singer for his "Kindie Rock" band The Baby Grands http://www.thebabygrands.com. The two teamed up with Nash's bandmates to record The Baby Grands II at Nash's studio, with Nash taking on singing and bass guitar duties. It was mixed at Rowell's Atlanta-based studio and released on his Backspace Records. Nash continued playing shows with his band and with the Baby Grands, kept recording other artists, and all-the-while kept recording the Ten Short Stories album.
